Gettin' Started

Hmm...alright. Julsey, is the yarn you bought the QuiƩtude in Kraft? I ordered it in Chocolate and hope it is a yummy chocolat-y color but those swatches on the Knit N Tyme website leave a little to be desired color wise. I'm pretty sure that anything would look good knit up into this sweater though. I started translating it tonight, I sure am glad that chart is there. How's the swatching coming?

Join the Knitalong!

It's time, fellow knitters, for us to get together to translate and knit this wonderful pattern from the Automne 05/06 Phildar Tendances pattern mag!
It's pattern number 20, found on page 24. If you already have the pattern, all you need to do is post a comment, please include your email address, and I'll add you to the KAL! If you need to order the pattern, it is available at Knit-n-Tyme, in French only. I don't speak a word of French, but I think I can understand the pattern...I look to you all for your insights and French knowledge!

To get you going, the pattern calls for 9-13 balls of Phildar Quietude yarn (50% merino, 50% acrylic) or a substitute with gague of 19 sts-27 rows=4" using 6-8 needles, (882-1274 yards total).

The pattern uses size 3 and 4 needles, and a size E4 crochet hook (yes there is a bit of crocheting for the neckline and flower).

Let's get it started!
